BE HERE NOW by Ram Dass
A NOTE FROM DARBY | "Be Here Now" is the #1 most important metaphysical, spiritual book to own. This book was a catalyst to my spiritual journey and my copy will remain in my collection forever. Never have I read any other book that made me feel as if the words jumped out of the page and slapped me in the face with realization. I've gifted this book to many friends and thought it would only be right to include it in my shop. You do not need to subscribe to any religion or have any spiritual background to benefit from this reading. You need only an open mind and the desire to improve your life.
Note: There is *some* talk about drugs such as LSD and psilocybin in "Be Here Now." It is brief but prevalent. The wisdom that Baba Ram Dass shared in his later years is not attributed to drug use, his interest in spirituality was only sparked by it. Garden Fairy Co. does not support/condone the use of any type of drug.
ABOUT THE BOOK | In March 1961, Professor Richard Alpert – later renamed Ram Dass – held appointments in four departments at Harvard University. He published books, drove a Mercedes and regularly vacationed in the Caribbean. By most societal standards, he had achieved great success... And yet he couldn’t escape the feeling that something was missing.
Psilocybin and LSD changed that. During a period of experimentation, Alpert peeled away each layer of his identity, disassociating from himself as a professor, a social cosmopolite, and lastly, as a physical being. Fear turned into exaltation upon the realization that at his truest, he was just his inner-self: a luminous being that he could trust indefinitely and love infinitely.
And thus, a spiritual journey commenced. Alpert headed to India where his guru renamed him Baba Ram Dass – “servant of God.” He was introduced to mindful breathing exercises, hatha yoga, and Eastern philosophy. If he found himself reminiscing or planning, he was reminded to “Be Here Now.” He started upon the path of enlightenment, and has been journeying along it ever since.
Be Here Now is a vehicle for sharing the true message, and a guide to self-determination.
With over 150 pages of metaphysical illustrations, practical advice on how to implement a yogic regiment, and a chapter dedicated to quotes and book recommendations, Be Here Now is sure to enrich your emotional, physical, and spiritual life.
